These leads use patented C13 female connectors with an internal locking mechanism which locks in an IEC power inlet, to provide a simple way of securing a power cable to any electrical equipment fitted with a standard IEC connector. They are invaluable for use with critical equipment, either free-standing or rack mounted and in areas subject to vibration such as outside broadcast vehicles, touring and 'fly-away' kit where standard connectors may become dislodged in transit. Ready made cables are offered terminated to standard IEC C14 male plugs, bare ends, and UK 13A and SCHUKO (right-angle) plugs.
The internal locking mechanism grips the equipment earth pin preventing accidental removal of the plug. The latch is released by an external sliding handle, which can be gripped from all sides and is pulled to release the connector from its socket. This design of release mechanism is particularly suitable for equipment with extremely closely spaced IEC outlets, such as 1U rackmount mains distributions units with 14 or 15 outlets, and some Dell and HP servers. No separate release tool is required.
Moulded 'IEC-Lock+' C13 female to IEC C14 male leads use black or orange jacketed cable, in 0.5m and 1.0m increments to ensure tidy looming.
'IEC-Lock+' C13 female to bare-end leads, with orange or black cable, allow leads to be cut to length precisely when fitting a re-wireable plug such as a Neutrik Powercon.
A re-wireable 'IEC-Lock+' C13 female connector is also available, stock code 42-3200.
All styles use 10Amp, 3 x 1.0mm sq., HO5 VV-F cable. Orange cables are normally ‘RAL2008 Light red orange’. UK 13A mains plugs are fitted with a 5A fuse.
All leads are supplied individually loose-coiled to avoid permanent kinks and ensure tidy installation. Larger quantities may be available bulk packed, please contact sales.
Other lengths, coloured cable jackets and other types of moulded SCHUKO leads are available to special order, minimum order quantities may apply.
